Kelly Rowland On New Album: “I’m Inspired By The Queens That Have Gone Before Us”

Published: Wednesday 2nd Apr 2014 by David


As one of the hardest working women in R&B, Kelly Rowland continues to reap the rewards garnered by her experimental debut offering and her time in Urban Pop supergroup Destiny‘s Child.

Now, as she creates a creative legacy of her very own, the singer has begun work on her first studio album since the ‘Ice‘-led piece ‘Talk a Good Game’, set to offer what many fans hope will be her strongest body of work today.

So, just who and what is the ‘Motivation’ maestra inspired by this time around?

The answer to that question…below!

Interesting. We’re, as ever, eager to hear what Kelly’s cooking up. Here’s hoping it’s served with a side helping of good promo.

Your thoughts?

    So she’s going Independent or has she found a label, she’ll sign with epic or atlantic

    I feel like she gave us this same song and dance during the development of her last two albums. Sad. She needs a stronger set of songs, excellent set of writers and producers, and maybe a running theme/concept for the overall album – something she always failed on delivering.

    Who? #flop

  5. Matthew Charlery-Smith April 2, 2014

    Unfortunately we are witnessing the beginnings of another flop it appears. Same tired, overcooked, overwrought lingo, “I’m inspired by women, we are women, my sister B, Beyonce started a movement, blah, blah, blah”. When will she talk about something else? Doesn’t she want to reach men too? It’s like Kelly can’t answer the tough questions and just be honest with herself. 15 years after Destiny’s Child kicked out members yet she still can’t even give a straight answer about it. This inauthenticity means she has to try too hard in other ways to bare her soul:

  6. Kefllopy April 2, 2014

    She says the same s*** every album #neauxonecurr

  7. jack April 2, 2014

    Kelly alright but Letoya is doing the most right now

  8. lovebird April 2, 2014

    Which label is funding this FLOP or is she going the Ashanti independent route?

    Death at Lil Wayne seeing the struggle that is ice a mile away and distancing himself from the desperation that was the video.

    FLOP #294930 (I lost count) on its way.

    • Sarah April 2, 2014

      I knew Kelly’s biggest supporter would be here..HEYYY boo!!! I was hoping we would see you today

  9. lovebird April 2, 2014

    Gurl she’s not signing with Epic; Epic is broke which is why they’re releasing a new Michael Jackson album.

    All the other artists on Epic have not smashed, Atlantic maybe, mostly because they are signing all the struggles (hint: K.Michelle), thank god Atlantic has got Bruno Mars.

    She might sign with Island after they push back Mariah’s album for the 100th time.

    • BLOW April 2, 2014

      N**** she’s almost signed to Epic record accroding to close sources but yet she is still considering the independent route And Epic is doing the most so they could sign. Why?
      Well, L.A call her Queen for her talent and succes and the newlabel president has always been supportive of her an she is the one whotook to republic record.

      Im intrigued to see how this goes, but she need place where people actually believe in her like @ Epic. Hopefully they will also invest enough in her project

  10. Sarah April 2, 2014

    You would think with the fresh new lay out…The old trash would’ve been thrown out as well.. IE Mr Lovebird…But im not he is Kelly’s biggest supporter…..Congrats Kelly!! Your humble and positive being will always follow you..continue to stay grateful and your spirit will always shine!

    • pussyy juice lover April 2, 2014

      • Sarah April 2, 2014

  13. Skyfall April 2, 2014

    TAGG was a good album she just released b******* singles and lack of promo as always

    • pussyy juice lover April 2, 2014

      It was a horrid album i skipped all the songs besides FREAK, a true snoozfest .

  14. Skyfall April 2, 2014


    if she does sign with epic at least she could go on tour why is Fifth Harmony and Tamar going on tour only after a year. not to mention some of tamar dates are at arenas

  15. pussyy juice lover April 2, 2014

    Ciara the album> talk a shitt game

  16. pussyy juice lover April 2, 2014

    Love and war> talk a s*** game

    • Skyfall April 2, 2014

      Tamar slay Kelly in every which way possible

  17. Skyfall April 2, 2014

    why is Tamar playing arenas while Kelly can only book jazz house stages

    • pussyy juice lover April 2, 2014

      Lol #12yearsalessor sis, 12 YEARS, 4 flop albums in a row i just cant deal with the flopness.

  18. pussyy juice lover April 2, 2014

    That short hair really emphasizes her horse face tbh.

  19. lovebird April 2, 2014


    With Kelly’s POOR work ethic, I highly doubt she can commit to a tour.

    • Sarah April 2, 2014

      Boy a poor work ethic lands you a networth of 45 million..while the so called hardworker Ciara is struggling to get half of that….sign me up for Kelly’s work ethic!

  20. Woman To Woman April 2, 2014

    Girl Kelly needs to get it together.

  21. Woman To Woman April 2, 2014

    @Skyfall kiiiiiiiiii

  22. christinastherealtalent April 2, 2014

    I love Kelly but I’m not believing anything she says about her new music because she always delivers solid material only to abandon the project for other gigs. She’s getting paid but if you want people to take you serious as an artist, you need to commit yourself to your music

  23. Sarah April 2, 2014

    Rihanna will be the laughing stock of the music industry in the next few years….And all the Mariah Carey fans will laugh in their faces…I can;t wait to see that..I wonder what their excuse is gonna be..seeing that Mariah cant get a break on this blog..and the b**** is beyond all the lesser h*** in here who talk s*** about her

    • Woman To Woman April 2, 2014

      girl bye only thing Rihanna does is laugh to the bank

  24. Woman To Woman April 2, 2014

    Kelly fans need to stop hating on Rihanna and Ciara and go purchase one of Kellys floppy disc

    • Sarah April 2, 2014

      I guess you didnt see the fact that Kelly was picked on and ALWAYS picked on first by the Rihanna & Ciara one hates anyone

    • FutureCIARA April 2, 2014

      She better #LipSynch DOWN!!!!!

    • Molly April 2, 2014

      muhahahaha….. i can’t her lazy ass just didn’t wanna perform so she fell.

    • jillian April 2, 2014

      when your fave sale as much as Kelly u can talk.

    • ozzyone April 2, 2014

      LMFAO!!! When did this happen????

  25. Mark111 April 2, 2014

    Kelly, until you’re done with the album, with a release date and a title, shut the hell up. It’s funny how she promotes her albums while she’s working on them, but when she releases them, she’s nowhere to be found (promoting, yet under some other b****.)

  26. lovebird April 2, 2014

    Did someone just say Rihanna will be the laughing stock of the industry?

    Y’all stay trying it with the chick who’ll be playing stadiums all over America whilst Kelly begs to be a feature (not headlining) at a Jazz festival.

    • Molly April 2, 2014

      Hey baby!

      • lovebird April 2, 2014

        Molly hey, how’s it going?

      • Molly April 2, 2014

        Going good i’ve missed you whyb? & how are you?

    • lovebird April 2, 2014

      I’m good,missed you too. Been busy lately but things have cooled down a little.

      What has been going on in your life?

    • Chillin April 2, 2014

      Aren’t you the same person that drags Mariah Carey…you do the math boo…First off Rihanna will NEVER reach the level of the GREAT Mariah Carey…the best to ever do it…so I’m sorry that you stan for Rihanna..she will forever be known as Chris Brown’s punching bag my dear..nothing more nothing less..(as she continues to struggle to reach the level of the Queen)

  27. Molly April 2, 2014

    My first time seeing Kelly fake faint that was such a kiiii

  28. pussyy juice lover April 2, 2014

    Lol Man down alone>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> kelly’s existance.

  29. pussyy juice lover April 2, 2014

    Lmfao!!@molly i saw it for the first time to, tha h** knew she will bore the crowd to death and she was too damn lazy to open her horse mouth to “sing” so the bitxh fell.

    • Molly April 2, 2014

      ahahahahahahaha kelly is truly pathetic.

  30. Keri Krew Kween April 2, 2014

    Lmao same s*** different year for Kelly. What she needs to do is find the right creative team and create an album with an actual concept and theme for it. All her albums are boring with boring singles and boring videos. She needs to step it up or sit down.

    • SDMG April 2, 2014

      But what is Keri doing? Nothing! first album managed gold and the second flopped even with a minor hit.. About the same as Kelly, except Keri will never have a #1.Maybe you should be the one sitting

      • Keri Krew Kween April 2, 2014

        Keri is taking her time on a new album and landing movie roles. She’s doing just fine. No Boys Allowed sold well over 250k, can we say the same about Kelly? Plus Keri’s albums have actual themes and concepts. You can sit down next to Kelly.

    • jillian April 2, 2014

      TAAG is a solid album one of the best R&B albums in 2013 what r u talking about?

  31. SDMG April 2, 2014

    Have the people actually saying TAGG was terrible, actually even listened to it? If you are a pop fan, how can you even judge an R&B album? What would you even know what to judge?
    Tamar album was dated and boring as hell,TAGG>L&W sales or not.
    If Tamar is doing any type of Arena it’s because she’s going to be on tour with someone else. The fact that these people think Tamar is even big enough to tour solo is laughable.
    Kelly’s just needs a decent team behind her,she makes better music than most artist do today. I just think it may be too late for her.
    Simply Deep is not a flop btw..Sold more than Tamar,and plenty of other artist ever will.

    • anonymous April 2, 2014

      well Tamar IS doing a solo tour. she just confirmed it last week. Typical Kelly stan always trying to discredit other artists who actually promote themselves. whether Tamar tours or not doesn’t change the fact that kelly is lazy as hell, which is why she flops.

  32. Mimi carey April 2, 2014

    I hate this basic horse b****

  33. Sarah April 2, 2014

    The fact that all of you are here with MULTIPLE comments on a Kelly Rowland post shows her relevance ..hahaha

  34. Sherock April 2, 2014

    Kelly has signed with Warner Bros. Records.

    • Sarah April 2, 2014

      The floppage shall continue

    • Jessica April 2, 2014

      Where did you find this out??? 😮

      • thetruth April 2, 2014

        She been signed with them since 2011… international marketing label.

  35. MissImpartial April 2, 2014

    What’s the point of recording an album every year if she never promotes them any way?

  36. taqueria arandas April 2, 2014

    Its apparent that she really wanted to do Year Of The Woman and the label wasnt here for it… that wanted Kelly to take a more sexier approach and deliver in the style of the feature she had been doing…. Kelly has never seemed to find the right mix of Label, Creative Freedom, & Management…

    She should be at a point were she can do what she wants to do, however, she cant because her sales & gameplan must be revamp’d yet again… Im a Kelly Supporter and hope the next oppurtunity allows her the freedom to grow… if she need help call DAWN RICHARD or better yet Drew Scott

  37. Brian310 April 2, 2014

    I hope she sets herself up with a better team this time around cause her last 2 albums were good and deserved more promotion from her.

  38. BLOW April 2, 2014

    She’s almost signed to Epic record accroding to close sources but yet she is still considering the independent route And Epic is doing the most so they could sign.

    Well, shes still under universal music group, L.A call her Queen for her talent and succes and the newlabel president has always been supportive of her an she is the one whotook to republic record.

    Im intrigued to see how this goes, but she need place where people actually believe in her like @ Epic. Hopefully they will also invest enough in her project

  39. Jessica April 2, 2014

    Can’t wait for the new album. Love you Kelly <3

  40. My Gums Tho(aka Teacher) April 2, 2014

    TAGG was a good ass album! Down On Love>>>>>>>>
    B**** yes!

  41. There once was a pimp and his h**…. April 2, 2014

    She is the definition of a flop!
    #Bye b****
